Schools Programme (STAR)
Our STAR (Secondary Tertiary Alignment Resource) courses are available to secondary school students who seek to improve their skills and gain unit standards. Small class sizes, tailored learning plans and one-on-one mentoring are designed to encourage students to re-engage with the learning process. Education gaps and learning styles are identified and students work towards individually set goals. Classes are delivered using a hands-on learning approach to inspire confidence by doing.
- Literacy and Numeracy (developing literacy and numeracy skills through practical activities – level 1 unit standards)
- Communication skills, confidence building and team work (a combination of level 1 and level 2 unit standards)
- Building and Construction (units towards NCEA2 Construction and Infrastructure Vocational Pathway – Kapiti Centre only)
By the end of the course students will have gained unit standards and increased their confidence in learning. The positive team building environment means students leave with enhanced communication and interaction skills.
Learners will cover:
- Gain unit standards outside the secondary school environment
- Tailored learning plans address individual learning needs and education gaps
- Kinaesthetic teaching methods appeal to more practical learning styles
